SARASOTA, Fla. - An unexpected visitor who surfaced Wednesday in the sewer of a Sarasota country club still remains in the storm drain

Security at The Meadows said they were hoping that a 9-foot alligator whose photo went viral over the Internet would make its way to a nearby retention pond. But as of Friday morning, the gator was still hanging out and hadn't moved.

The Meadows says if the alligator is still in the drain on Saturday that they will contact a trapper who will not kill the reptile, only move it.
